What does it mean to be a mechanic of verse?

Garage lighting,
when you show up don’t be dumb.
Just drop your clothes and shine for me.
I’ll be an old man.
I’ll be working on that car.

So many lives have shined back and forth behind me by then.
The open bay     queen     desert     fruit-stand     deer
the clearing     (owls).

So far, I don’t have that soft pudge in the middle,
that nostalgia.
If I want a beer I’ll have one.
I only want my work.

I got a lot of good genes from my grandfather.
His eyes were blue. Mine are brown/green/yellow/
atoms back and forth.
Get down on that creeper,
slide back and forth and shine for me.
